With a win for the girls and second place hardware for the boys, the Beal City Middle School Cross Country teams had a great night at their final meet of the 2016 season on Friday!

Elizabeth Philo took over half a minute off her season best while Jade Sackett and Kyleigh Methner dropped well over a minute and Sydney Soules lowered her lifetime best by beating her 2016 time by over a minute. For the boys, all nine Aggies had their best times of the year led by Derek Gross as he broke 12:00 for the first time at 11:58.6 to place fourth. Career bests by Matthew Kolb (10th, 12:45.0) and Matt Clark (16th, 13:13.2) along with debut season bests by Brandon Gross (12th, 12:56.9) and Michael Hopkins (15th, 13:07.7) rounded out the runner-up team score. Travis Faber (18th, 13:20.5) took better than thirty seconds off his lifetime best with Logan Mishler close behind in a :40 season best of 13:24.6. Owen Haupt dropped nearly a minute off his personal record and Jacob Vollmar lowered his 2016 best by over 25 seconds. With a second straight Highland Conference Championship and excellent invitational showings in addition to this podium finale, these Jr. Aggies worked hard and had fun throughout a GREAT season! Coach Danforth and Coach King appreciate the great attitudes and fine work ethic that produced such success! We had lots of fun, as well, and will miss you, but we look forward to more great Aggie accomplishment in the future!
